WHAT: La Chablisienne Saint-Bris Sauvignon Blanc (white) Rating: NNN
WHERE: Saint-Bris, France
WHY: Here’s a tasty little asterisk. All white wine from Burgundy is made from Chardonnay grapes, except in the tiny Saint-Bris appellation, where they grow Sauvignon Blanc. Sauvy B can sometimes overwhelm, but here subdued fruit is augmented nicely by the stoney flavours characteristics that typify this region. If winter’s driving you to drink, then seek solace in this summer-compatible bottle of brightness.
